Research says, that the students enrolling in schools and colleges practicing online teaching are facing very little stress as compared to the traditional learning environments. E-learning is emerging as the most appropriate technology and technique in the field of education. Millions of students and teachers are learning with the phenomenon of online teaching. Online learners enjoy learning in a different environment suitable as compared to high stressed traditional forms of learning or physical classroom learning. The practices and procedures make learning complex in physical classrooms. Making files, projects, maintaining notebooks of all subjects get difficult to manage. Senior classes suffer more burden because of the complexity of the subjects too. This develops a poor and monotonous learning environment for everybody. Though the usual schools and college time is from seven or eight am in the morning but students have to wake one or two hours before this. They get free till the afternoon time. This causes a lot of fatigue and tiredness in them. After completing homework, attending tuitions, and self-study also need to be done. Among all these students get very little time for themselves and the activities or hobbies they like to perform. Students are overburdened and their self–time is also obstructed. There are many other encumbers as well which make learning complex via old and traditional practiced methods. As per many surveys and research all across the globe, thousands of college students pursuing online degree courses feel relaxed and less burdened. They have fewer chances of movement and displacement and hence feel elated and boosted. Many students living in States or places where good colleges and institutions are not available, have to travel and live at other places to receive an education. This process is not as simple as it sounds. A lot of travel expenditure goes into it. Buying plane or train tickets add more to the overall budget. Luggage and essentials are transported or shipped to the required place. There are high commuting costs. Paying guests, private hostels, or government hostels, everything required money. Parents have to spend a lot to get their children settled at a particular place for learning. Other than expenditure, students also go through a lot of emotional and social disturbances and pressure. Living in a new place s not an easy task. Students go through a lot is emotional ups and downs. Social changes, the addition of new people, staying away from your close ones is complex to perform. The ones who manage this with the support of their families are quite privileged. But we also know that we live in Indian society. Here, after being in the twenty-first century, people have the stereotypical mindset. They believe in society created stereotypes and prejudices. These stereotypes make the education process difficult to achieve for several learners. Parents don’t send their children to another place for getting a higher education and hence such students face deprivation. Online teaching appears as a savior for all such students spread across the world. Such students can attend colleges virtually by living anywhere in the world. All they need is the knowledge on how to teach online, online classes, and a good network. This reduces the burden as well as stress level of both parents and their children.

Learning, storing the data, important information, and syllabus is also not at all difficult. Writing everything in the notebooks is not a necessity anymore. There are very few printing costs done. The information can be accessed, studied, and stored on our mobile phones, computers, laptops, or any other network device through a particular educational app. All the important stuff, notices, college or school data, and every content of importance can be retrieved online.
